Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux


Miggui fails to authenticate to the OES 2 Linux target server.

The migration.log and the debug.log in /var/opt/novell/migration/<project name>/log/
both have this error:

nbackup: Unable to retrieve the Target Service Name list from<target server name>


Open a terminal to the Linux target server and confirm the novell-smdrd daemon status:

rcnovell-smdrd status

Restart the daemon if it is running and confirm it loads healthy from terminal screen messages and entries in /var/log/messages:

rcnovell-smdrd stop
rcnovell-smdrd start

Start the service if it is not currently running:

rcnovell-smdrd start
